Ham&High Editor Geoff Martin said: "We want to help residents make a positive choice at this year's election by providing as much policy and political news as possible in the areas they live. Our campaign to help raise voter turnout has included providing electoral registration forms in our papers (10,000 over the last two weeks) - making us the first media outlet in the country to do so.
"We have given out similar forms at all our election debates as well as organising these opportunities for residents to see the debate for free close to their homes.
"We hope people decide to turn out at this year's vote and make a decision that proves our campaign has been a success."
Meanwhile in Camden the Roundhouse has stepped in to do their bit for young voters.
This weekend a series of events for 18-25 year olds will be held at the iconic Chalk Farm venue under the title Do You Feel Counted?
The showpiece event of the weekend is a panel debate on Saturday with the BBC's Evan Davis involving representatives from all the major political parties, along with T4 presenter Rick Edwards.
The debate is at 2pm and is free of charge.
Other events include music and performance all with a political twist all day Saturday and Sunday.
